Visiting Canyons: The Beautiful 4 Which Everyone Must Visit At least Once

Visiting Canyons: The Beautiful 4 Which Everyone Must Visit At least Once

Gorges make for some of the most beautiful natural sceneries in the world and today, we are going to take a look at four of the most gorgeous canyons in the world that everyone needs to visit at least once in their lifetime.

Kings Canyon, Australia

The Northern Territory of Australia sees thousands of visitors each year just because of the Kings Canyon, as everyone wants to get a look at the magnificent, orange cliffs, contrasted perfectly by the green forested areas in the Garden of Eden. On your visit, be careful and stick to the marked rim walks and hiking routes only because there are protected areas of Aboriginal sacred ground here.

Copper Canyon, Mexico

If you thought the Grand Canyon was big, wait till you get a look at Copper Canyon in Chihuahua, Mexico. Although it isn’t a singular gorge like the Grand Canyon is, the multiple canyons together are as big as numerous Grand Canyons put together! The copper-green color of the cliffs here explains the name, and as you get onboard a train on Chihuahua al Pacifico to enjoy the scenic views, you will come to appreciate your decision to visit the Copper Canyon.

Bryce Canyon, USA

The hoodoo formations of Bryce Canyon have made it world famous, but thanks to a wide variety of things to do here, this one is probably the most interesting entry on this list. After a hard day spent hiking through the many trails in Bryce Canyon National Park, enjoy a Flat Iron Steak or a Cowboy Chicken dinner at the Ebenezer’s Barn & Grill, while listening to some of the best local music. Once you have spent some time in the national park, get in your car and get onto the Byway 143 to enjoy a gorgeous Utah sunset at the backdrop of the Bryce Canyon. There’s just so much to do here that it is more than likely you will need to stay near the canyon for more than a day to truly experience everything.

Grand Canyon, USA

A list of canyons cannot be completed without including the grandest (arguably) canyon of them all, aka, the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Some would say it is not the most beautiful canyon in the world, but it does come pretty close! Certainly, it is the most famous canyon of all time. The 446 km long and 1.6 km deep gorge is a sight to behold when the sun begins to rise or set. The views here are breathtaking from anywhere really, with a mix of colors and light that is both typical and atypical of canyons at the same time.

If your favorite canyon wasn’t a part of this list, then don’t feel disheartened because beauty is subjective and every one of the wonderful natural canyons on this planet deserve to be seen. On the other hand, if you were looking for some experienced suggestions regarding which of the world-famous canyons to see first, now you have your answer.
